sonnen’s groundbreaking Virtual Power Plant (VPP) technology virtually links together local networks of sonnen batteries to form a single renewable power plant that is capable of deploying enough stored sunshine to reduce the use of traditional fossil fuels and lower CO2 emissions. By using intelligent batteries and groundbreaking VPP software, sonnen helps provide clean, reliable energy to customers, greater energy control to local grid operators and financial benefits to property owners.
The sonnen VPP is a revolutionary product that combines a unique business model with groundbreaking technology to help you create clean energy communities that benefit your customers and the bottom line.
sonnen’s safe, long-lasting and environmentally friendly ecoLinx battery solutions are built for performance as a VPP grid asset providing up to 371 MWh of lifetime energy throughput per ecoLinx 30 unit guaranteed (see Warranty for details).
The sonnen VPP software is the backbone that links and manages networks of intelligent solar batteries, forming scalable, renewable energy power plants that offer services to the local grid — demand response, frequency regulation, load management, and resiliency.
Our unique model enables builders and developers to easily implement VPPs in retrofit and new projects by providing access to project financing and investment, turnkey project design and development, and VPP fleet management and operating support.
Since 2018, sonnen has partnered with innovative builders, developers, and utility partners across the US to lead the way to cleaner and healthier communities, like Soleil Lofts. The Soleil Lofts VPP proves the model for creating a distributed and dispatchable battery management system that provides ongoing benefits to all.
